Commentary on the Gospel of

Fr. JCR Garcia Paredes


If we have the blessed gift of forgetfulness, let us not criticize ourselves for it.  A naturally forgetful person cannot bear a grudge for long, as King Darius knew when he commissioned a slave to shout in his ear three times a day:  “Sire remember the Athenians!”  But can we simply choose to forget?  There is a difference between simple recollection and a willful harboring of resentment.  But we can choose not to nurse and feed our resentments; then they may eventually die of malnutrition.
